Description



About the Book



Relates the tale of Jack who, after trading his mother's milk cow for magic beans, climbs a beanstalk to seek his missing father in the land of giants.



Book Synopsis



Fairy tale fans will give a GIANT cheer for this funny retelling of Jack and the Beanstalk from the New York Times Bestselling author of Rump and Red!

All his life, Jack has longed for an adventure, so when giants turn up in the neighbor's cabbage patch, he is thrilled! Soon Jack is chasing them to a land beyond the clouds, with his little sister, Annabella, in tow. The kingdom of giants is full of super-sized fun: puddings to swim in, spoons to use as catapults, monster toads to carry off pesky little sisters. . . .
But Jack and Annabella are on a mission. The king of the giants has taken something that belongs to them, and they'll do anything--even dive into a smelly tureen of green bean soup--to get it back.

"Liesl Shurtliff has the uncanny ability to make magical worlds feel utterly real, and the best part is: you don't even need a beanstalk to visit them." --Tim Federle, author of Better Nate than Ever

A delightful story of family, perseverance, and courage. --Booklist



Review Quotes



Liesl Shurtliff has the uncanny ability to make magical worlds feel utterly real, and the best part is: you don't even need a beanstalk to visit them. --Tim Federle, author of Better Nate Than Ever

Shurtliff's second fairy-tale endeavor, following Rump (2013), soars into the sky and is a delightful story of family, perseverance, and courage. --Booklist

With a healthy dose of honor and integrity to accompany his wisecracking ways, Jack is a winning hero, and his adventures--both unexpected and recognizable--will please those readers with rollicking spirits or a yen for tales retold. --The Bulletin
